A rede social profissional LinkedIn deu o pontapé de saída, seguiram-se o motor de busca russo Yandex.ru e a rádio On Line Pandora.
As próximas grandes “estrelas” a animarem o mercado serão a editora de videojogos Zynga e o site de descontos Groupon… e em 2012 será o momento do Facebook.
In the first half of 2011, the buzz around new tech IPOs such as LinkedIn, Pandora, Groupon, and Zynga has been the top story on Wall Street. LinkedIn’s IPO early this year was the biggest Internet IPO since Google’s Debut in 2004 with prices opening around $80 and soaring to prices around $120 by mid-day. Some say that LinkedIn’s IPO was the precursor for Facebook and the success of social media sites on Wall Street. Even though Pandora has not made a profit in all of its existence and that they cannot predict when the company will go into the black, the company still had a successful day during its IPO. With Groupon and Zynga filing for IPOs, the buzz on The Street around tech and Internet companies has been this loud since the early 2000s.
